Matt is one of our Creative Artworkers (and resident rock god). He has worked in our Studio for around 5 years, designing catalogue and brochure artwork for our clients (or in his own words: “I do arty stuff”)!
His favourite part of his role is the creative process; designing something from scratch.
“What drew me to a career in graphic design? Well, I found a PC with Corel Draw installed on it when I was studying Electronic Engineering at College... I have never worked in the electronics field because of that!”
His favourite project to date has been working on Ginetta’s account. He’s always loved cars, and as a 10 year old had dreams of being a drummer and racing driver like Cozy Powell (Google him)!
He got halfway there anyway – outside his day job, Matt plays the drums in an Alice Cooper Tribute band!
“Working at Telescope is cool. We have a great team, and everyone gets along. Everyone is always happy to help anyone else out when they need it, or share skills and knowledge."
5 Questions for Matt...
How do you take your cup of tea?
Strong, not too milky, no sugar… The correct way!
What’s the best album of all time?
I’d have to go for Apostrophe and Overnite Sensation by Frank Zappa. Two records technically… but both released on the same CD as ‘Apostrophe/Overnite Sensation’, so can I have those?!
What 3 items would you bring to a desert island?
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
New York so far. I got to see a band at CBGB before it closed!
Give us a random fact about yourself!
I exclusively use Vic Firth American Hickory 3A drumsticks. (Well, you didn’t say it had to be an interesting fact!)
